11/10 crappie!

Curious. Did not mark hardly any fish on most brush piles or the bluffs. The bluffs are a particular puzzle for me and the wife. For twenty years when the water temperature was between 45 and 66 we would consistently catch good stringers of crappie (10 to 20) on very steep, almost vertical bluffs without exception. We had 3 bluffs we focused on. In the last 3 years this bite has completely disappeared. We averaged a little over 4 crappie a trip 4 years ago and this year it is only0.5 crappie a trip. Yup, that sucks..

Occasionally I would mark a fish separated just above the pile but for the most part they were down in it. If I run over the pile at idle speed first, I will get a better snap shot of the pile as a whole, and any fish that are on the fringes will show up better, as compared to just hovering over the top of the pile.

That reminds me, next time I need to run over the pile with DI, as that is supposed to be much better for showing fish that are close to structure.
